Discover New Worlds Readathon

Discover New Worlds Readathon
Who is ready for another readathon?!

For some reason, it feels like we did the Journey to Atlantis Readathon so long ago, but it was only a few weeks ago.

As you know, this year, we're doing readathons every other month this year. So that means we have three more left! One in August, October and December.

Our August readathon is our Discover New Worlds readathon! I'm so excited for this one because I have been wanting to do something steampunk for awhile and we finally get to!

All of the kits and reading and planner accessories are live NOW and the readathon itself will take place from August 26-September 1
Now, let's dial back a bit and go over a few things for those that haven't participated with our readathons before.


A readathon is a special event hosted by someone within the book community. For our purposes, it's hosted by the Creating & Co book club group. During the time period of the readathon, we read books according to different challenges and do other fun stuff like reading sprints and photo challenges and even a costume contest!

For this readathon, we will have five book challenges:

  1. Group Read: TBA (visit our FB group to vote for the group read!)
  2. New Author 
  3. Journey
  4. Different Time
  5. Foiled Cover

For these challenges, you can read one book that fits all the challenges or a different book for each challenge or do a little bit of both! It's up to you!

As always, we're leaving it up to you as to what counts for each prompt. These prompts are meant to be a guide so if you can make a book fit, then it works!


We mentioned photo challenges because we love to encourage creativity over here at Creating & Co and what better way than to combine our love of reading and planners?! 

With that in mind, we invite you to share the photos as you take them or all at once in the book club group AND if you share on social media use the hashtag #ccdiscnewworlds

Now here they are:

  1. TBR (To be read) Stack
  2. Metal/Metallic
  3. Floral
  4. Purple


A reading sprint is when one of the cohosts post in the facebook group to read for a certain amount of time. Everyone that can reads during that time and then reports back with how much they read. It's a lot of fun and a good way to meet your reading goals AND read with others!


For this readathon, we will be doing a live show during the weekend of the readathon (likely on Sept 1st in the evening) for the group read! Make sure to check the group to find out when that will happen. We'll discuss the book--spoilers and all!


Absolutely NOT! To participate in the readathon, it's totally free! You just have to pick a book and read with us! Of course, we will have a bunch of items--like an exclusive planner kit, a matching bookmark, special washi, and a special enamel pin!

Don't forget, we'll be doing SIX readathons this year and each one will have a coordinating pin so make sure you collect them all!
